Not unmoving, I actually enjoyed reading it and in ideology it sounds great. In reality however, I could never convert to Islam as long as their is
Jihad. I just don't feel it bro.
behead people, even children
engage in slavery
destroy museums and churches
line up Christians and shot them
capture girls to use as sex slaves
"give" captured slave wives to men for memorizing Koran verses
force women into isolation
make women hide themselves because they have no control over their own desires
force women to marry men they don't want
not allow women to drive
not allow women to walk outside without a male relative
engage in female genital mutilation so women feel only pain upon intercourse
As long as there are a number of very large communities of Muslims engaging in these activities
in the name of Islam and in the name of Allah
The religion of Islam overall has not evolved enough into the modern world
for me to take it seriously
and produces far more evil people committing HORRIFIC ACTS than any other religion does or has
in the last 50 years,
I can not even fathom wanting it as a dominant religion anywhere.
Attack Christians now if you want; but in the last 500 years
there have been no crusades;
in the last 100 years Christians have not held slaves;
in the last 50 years only small pockets of Christians have
done evil things (as happens with any and all extremely large
groups of people);
There is currently no religion in the world that does as much corporate evil ACTS (not speech but actual horrific ACTS) in the name of their religion

Remember, this thread is about Islam, not Christianity,
but I know that many will turn it about Christianity,
which I why I inserted what I did.
Every thread I have seen about Islam on ATS
has turned into a Christian bashing thread,
because no one can defend Islam
so they deflect and side step the real problems
with the practice of Islam in the Muslim countries.
Because no one can defend these HORRIFIC ACTIONS
done in the name of Allah,
so they attack others as more evil
when the others have only about 10% of the evil acts
in their communities as the Muslim religion does.
Attacking Christians to defend Islam, is one of the weakest
and most cowardly ways of defending Islam.
It is like saying: Yes I beat him up and robbed him,
and so what if he is now on life support?
His cousin twice removed pushed me last year.
There are good Muslims in the US, and other places.
But the religion itself, because of the fruit of the religion.
One knows the heart of belief by the actions of the people believing.
Right now the fruit is rotten and killing people.
